Kansas Board of Education to Hear Standards Updates


TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The Kansas Board of Education will hear updates next week on progress in writing new standards for teaching history, government and social studies throughout the state. The board's agenda for its January 15 meeting also includes a status report on a national project to draft new science standards. The guidelines are similar to the Common Core standards that were adopted by states for reading and math. Four new members who won election to the 10-member board in November will be sworn in. The board will also reorganize in preparation for the next two years; members need to select a chairman, to replace the retiring David Dennis of Wichita.
